On Reality Check, we look at the brewing resentment in South India over its share of Central funds. The bone of contention: use of 2011 census in Terms of Reference of the 15th Finance Commission. Kerala has called a meeting of southern states. In what is being seen as damage control by the BJP, party leader Ram Madhav today met Finance Commission chief NK Singh.
